Left: The tank all set up and ready
Thankfully Rebecca was healthy this year for her birthday. This time it was Marietta who was sick. Marietta spent the day at home, resting, so she'd have energy to party later on. After school Rebecca had her friend Meaghan over and we all went to Chatters Indoor Playground for a couple hours of fun. We hit the place on a good day as there were no birthday parties going on at the time and we left before any arrived.
I think Matthew enjoyed the place the most, and was far from ready to leave when the girls decided to call it quits. The playset is designed in such a way that he could get up and around it all on his own. Parents are also able and allowed to play/crawl around. The only help he really needed was a little boost to get up to the big slide ... I imagine done on purpose to prevent little kids from going down ... but Matthew showed no fear and quite enjoyed it.
Left: The kids are all lying down on the "stairs". It was Matthew who started this idea. The girls found him lying on one of the stairs ... guess he was getting a little tired out ... so they all joined in.
Birthday cake time. I had planned on making a goldfish cake, but Rebecca found a Garfield cake mold downstairs and insisted on Garfield ... even though she hasn't the faintest idea who he is. Either way it still tasted the same :)
